Olay Complete BB Cream in Fair - Reviewed!

I haven't picked up a new BB Cream in a little while. I used to use them all the time and now I tend to reach for a lighter foundation on a daily basis. I was browsing Asda the other weekend and I spotted this reduced to £4 instead of £10 so I thought it looked interesting and was worth giving a try.

The packaging is really nice and sleek. I always associate Olay as a brand my Gran would use but this looks like it is designed for all ages. It is a moisturising cream with a touch of foundation; the foundation is by Max Factor and also has an SPF 15. It is clear to me that this is going to give you a light amount of coverage to the skin whilst giving some hydration.

When you apply the product it doesn't look too orange which I like as the shade is described as fair which I think it is. As you blend it onto the skin it feels very smooth and like you're applying a moisturiser. I think it definitely applies best with fingers for this reason. The coverage is light and evens the skin out nicely. I then apply concealer on any blemishes and under the eyes which gives a really nice natural look to the skin. Since I have combinational skin I do set in with a primer as it does feel a little glowy on the skin. 

I really do like the finish this gives to the skin and the colour is a very nice, natural looking shade. The wear time isn't the best and I found I got a little oily throughout the day. If you didn't set it with a powder I can see how it would break down in the t-zone and on the chin. I don't expect products like this to stay looking flawless throughout the day. For me, this is something i'd put on if i'm just running errands on a weekend and didn't want to wear a full face of makeup or if I just wanted something to quickly even out the skin. 

Olay Complete BB Cream retails for £9.99. 

I think the wear time would be better on drier skin but if you're very oily it might be one to miss. Have you tried this? What are some of your favourite BB Creams or Tinted Moisturisers?
